Baby, Moving, Settling In

It is August 26th, 2013.

My last post is dated August 14, 2012.

Time flies when you’re figuring out how to be a mom…

This is a quick update. Now that my darling son is almost a year old and I’ve gotten used to being a stay-at-home mom, I am hoping to get back into the blog-o-sphere. My goal is to post something once a week, but no promises. I think we’ll be lucky if I get once a month, but I have high hopes and lots of things I would like to tell you about…you being, well, maybe it’ll just be for myself…

Okay, here we go…

What’s happened since August 14, 2012? Obviously, there is a lot that has happened in the past year, but this is the gist of it: baby, move, settling in.

First, I had a baby! Desmond Colgate was born 2 weeks early under some pretty crazy circumstances. Nate and I went in to triage thinking my water had broken – it hadn’t, but I DID have preeclampsia. This was strange news to me, as my blood pressure had been normal all throughout my pregnancy – until now. We were admitted at 10:00pm,

 and Desmond was born at 9:30am the next morning. It was a crazy whirlwind, but we were so happy to finally meet our little man.

Two months after Desmond was born, we packed up, said goodbye to our friends who had become our San Diego family, and headed back East to Lawrence, Kansas. This was another crazy whirlwind, but we are feeling settled and continue to receive confirmation from God that this is where we are supposed to be. We love being closer our families (and the grandparents LOVE having Des closer!), and I have really fallen for Lawrence. A future blog post I hope to put together is my top 10 things I love about Lawrence.

Here’s hoping I can be a little more consistent on this blog starting today! Until then, here are a few pictures of our little man:
